DOES EXERCISE WEIGHT LOSS?

And your other perennial diet questions, answered once and for all

Whether you’re in sundresses in the UK or stripping off on the beach on holiday, it’s natural to think about the shape you’re in at this time of year. And if you’re not 100 per cent happy with the way your body looks, it can be tempting to latch on to the latest quick fix – often a demanding or difficult diet or workout regime. The good news, though, is that while there’s no magic bullet, shifting those extra kilos really doesn’t have to be a drag…

THE MYTH:

I NEED TO FOCUS ON MY BELLY FAT

Helen Bond says: ‘We’ve all read about wonder diets that promise to give us flatter tummies. But where you carry weight is largely determined by your genes and gender and you can’t reduce fat in targeted areas. That said, when you lose weight all over, it’ll be more noticeable from your ‘trouble spots’. For the ultimate fat-burning boost, eat a healthy, balanced diet and control portion sizes. Also, do a combo of aerobic activity, such as HIIT, running or swimming, and include strengthening exercises such as lifting weights or using your own body weight in exercise, such as push-ups and lunges. Each week aim for at least 150 minutes of moderately intense aerobic exercise and do strength training at least twice. It’s not rocket science but it’s the best way to slim down all over, including around your belly.’
